Anything by Miles is cool with me
Well.....it's from an album called birth of the cool you might have a look at that.
Composed by John Carisi ...you might look at his other stuff.
And notables in the Band with Miles were Gerry Mulligan, JJ Johnson and Lee Konitz. You might want to have a look at their other work.
I think that should keep you busy for a decade or so lol
I think the point is the combined work of Gerry Mulligan, JJ Johnson and Lee Konitz would keep you busy for a long time.
I've just checked a few Lee Konitz's tunes on uTube - found nothing that "jumpy" (it might take some time).
Any specific example? Israel has some jumps of 17 semitones (a few 14 too) and it doesn't show - it feels and sounds very fluid....another tune which comes in my mind is the starting of Harlem Nocturne (but much less daring than Israel).
Zannad, bar 15 of Joe Hendersons "InnerUrge" has a descending 11th, also bar 24 of Billy Strayhorn's " Chelsea Bridge" has a descending 13th.. But this is not my thread..I was just pointing out that there is a lot of work between the 3 sax players mentioned..
Don't be fooled by how easy this guy makes it sound.
